Living in South Florida we have a great influence of Latin flavors. So if you like Hummus, you have to try this variation of it. You can have this as an appetizer or add it as a topping to your veggie or turkey burger and now you have healthy and a gourmet dish!
As vegetarians(or not), we need to add protein to our bodies. The following recipe is "pumped" with plant-based proteins from beans, seeds and oats. As a vegetarian, this is one of my to go recipes when I want a burger (you don't need to be vegetarian in order to savor this baby!). At The Real Food Academy, we have also made this recipe with hundreds of kids and just after we got their seal of approval (kids can be harsh recipe judges) we decided on going public with it! TIP: Serve it with our Sweet and Tangy Coleslaw with Apples
and top it with avocado slices and sprouts. Next time you have a gathering your guest will be impressed with your new plant-based burger!
This recipe does not miss having the meat to be a really good "chili". However, you can always add ground turkey if you can't live without. The combination of flavors make it a winner!
The Fresh Summer Bean Salad is our version of the classic bean salad, we have added green and sugar snaps beans in a light basil vinaigrette for a twist. It’s light, full filling and packed with proteins and fiber. If you have extra time, try homemade beans instead of canned, you can make them ahead of time and keep them refrigerated, in their liquid for up to 3 days.
Fun to make, this easy recipe can be made ahead of time and reserved in the refrigerator for later cooking. It can be made gluten and nut free. Serve with our Raw Ketchup, some fresh greens and vegan cheese. For a twist you can also add sprouts, caramelized sweet onions, mushrooms, avocado or raw Thai slaw!
